A great, easy to use mapping tool for updating OpenStreetMap on the go, as a beginner, or both. It finds nearby items on the map that are missing information (street names, bike lane status, parking access, building levels etc.) and turns them into quests for you to fill in details around you. It's not very powerful, so if you want to add new paths or structures, you'll need another app (or a desktop). But what it does, it does very well, and I use it for most of my on-the-ground mapping.

What an amazing app! I love the clean and fun interface, and how it encourages exploration while also helping the amazing cause of OSM. The little rewards you get for fishing certain tasks are a lovely touch, and so are the links to different OSM Projects that you unlock along the way. In many years of using smartphones, this is the first review I've written because I REALLY wanted to give this app a bump. Highly highly recommend!!

Hey, thank you for the detailed review :-)
This app makes it extremely easy to contribute to OpenStreetMap, simply by walking the neighbourhood and answering simple questions. It is fun to walk with my son and discuss features that we'd both normally ignore. It is also is a great gateway to editing OSM on the web, when you come across things like a building marked with the wrong number or purpose, that can't be corrected in the app. Even undoing your own additions is easy, by skipping back along a list.
